Why did WiAiPi.com fail?

With the advancements in technology, nearly everything can be planned in advance including hotels, doctors appointments, restaurants, with a simple click of a button. WiAiPi (pronounced VIP) tried to take advantage of this and go one step further so people could book their place in a nightclub ready for their arrival, why not? The whole project started with a team of just four; a designer, a programmer, and two others that knew the Luxembourg night scene like the back of their hand having experienced it over time as DJ’s and as party-goers. When we were approached, they were actually surprisingly quite far forward in the process and were eager to push forward and get going. They had already considered what packages will be offered by the clubs and how customers will pay securely online as well as having printed business cards and drawn up contracts for nightclubs should they be interested in the idea. We were pleasantly surprised by the focus and the drive of the team and they looked ready to go with a bit of investment which led to our first mistake; not questioning the idea far enough.

Lux-Ps – Full of Potential, Difficult to Scale

Lux-Ps entered a huge European market in second-hand cars; as a result of the sheer size of the industry, each country offers their own related rules and regulations. I found a niche very quickly though as the Italians were put off big cars due to the tax and I found a market for them in Denmark. My partner and I decided to try a test run by going to Italy, buying two large cars, taking them to Denmark, and selling them for a profit; it worked like a treat. We decided to then take the next step and get in contact with dealers in Denmark that needed these sorts of vehicles; with my Danish-speaking partner in tow, we targeted big dealers for a number of cars per week.
